SERVICING

Should your VCR become inoperative, do not try to correct the
problem by yourself. There are no user-serviceable parts
inside. Turn off, unplug the power plug, and take the unit to our
Authorized Service Center.

CABINET CLEANING

• Wipe the front panel and other exterior surfaces of the VCR

with a soft cloth immersed in lukewarm water and wrung dry.

• Never use a solvent or alcohol. Do not spray insecticide liquid

near the VCR. Such chemicals may cause damage and
discoloration to the exposed surfaces.

AUTO HEAD CLEANING

• Automatically cleans video heads as you insert or remove a

cassette, so you can see a clear picture.

• Playback picture may become blurred or interrupted while the

TV program reception is clear. Dirt accumulated on the video
heads after long periods of use, or the usage of rental or
worn tapes can cause this problem. If a streaky or snowy
picture appears during playback, the video heads in your
VCR may need to be cleaned.

1. Please visit your local Audio/Video store and purchase a

good quality VHS Video Head Cleaner.

2. If a Video Head Cleaner does not solve the problem, consult

our nearest Authorized Service Center.

NOTES:

• Remember to read the instructions included with the video

head cleaner before use.

• Clean video heads only when problems occur.

• Designs and specifications are subject to change without notice.
• If there is a discrepancy between languages, the default language will be English.
